Marathon Monday: On a boat


It’s Monday already! Sheesh!


So I have literally nothing to tell you in terms of training– I haven’t run since the half marathon last week! I really felt like running when I got home and had planned to get out a couple times, but it took me longer than expected to recoup from the time change and my little 32-hours of being awake stint. Bad idea. By the time I felt ready to run we were heading to the boat, where running is literally impossible!

Phaedra has already sent me a new plan for the next couple weeks to see how things are looking as I train for the next couple of races– Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Half Marathon and the Hamilton Road2Hope Half. My two faves over the last couple of years! The thing that I have been struggling with most this season (injuries aside) is getting to the freaking gym. I seem to have lost my lifting mojo and I need it back ASAP. I’ve been thinking about repeating Phase 1 of LiveFit for some muscle building for a few weeks. We will see!

So we headed to my parents’ boat on Friday night and arrived back home late this afternoon. The doggies had SO MUCH FUN. I am going to try and refrain from posting all 5342949 pics that we took of them.



We spent Saturday and Sunday nights anchored at an island in Georgian Bay called Christian Island.  It had beautiful clear water and a sandy beach. We only wish it had been a bit warmer on Sunday!


The doggies did lots of swimming and running around the beach during the day, and we BBQ’d at night! So fun and cozy. I must have taken 5 naps on my mini boat bed, hahaha. The rocking of the boat just makes you soooo sleepy! Just ask the doggies.


Now here is some more picture overload before I pack it in for the night!






I will stop here! Hope you had a lovely long weekend, too!

Talk soon!




  1. Such good photos!!!
    I think we’ve got the same goals for the next few months. I need to email PK and ask her for some advice too!! Not sure how I should proceed over the next few weeks. I neeeeeeed to break 1:44. NEED.
    And I will go to the gym tomorrow to lift. Writing that because if I don’t tell someone I’m going then I will stay in bed all day.

  2. SOOOO much puppy cuteness!! Looks like the perfect long weekend!

  3. Too much cuteness for WORDS. Georgian Bay is STUNNING..sounds like a lovely long weekend!
